The Cure’s ‘4:13 Dream’ Drops Tomorrow

Robert Smith adores us far too much to ever deprive us of pop gems like the Cure’s new single “The Only One,” an exuberant declaration of amour. But, alas, the specter of death lurks — and 4:13 Dream is, for the most part, a harrowing and metallic affair, rife with the gothic terror of mortality. From the desperate romanticism of epic opener “Underneath the Stars” to the album’s ominous closers — “The Scream” and “It’s Over” — this is another masterpiece of human uncertainty, a soundtrack to the onset of winter’s chill.
